The brief for this stunning backyard wedding was simple: Ben and Linda wanted to celebrate their love with close friends and family in their very own backyard. Uncomplicated, elegant. All the best bits. They are both mountain bikers (like me!), and had their bike bags all tucked up under the stairwell for a trip to Rotorua, New Zealand, the day after the wedding.

This was a very special wedding. Harleigh and Callan got in touch with me a while back, and told me a bit about their day. They explained they were young, on a bit of a budget, but had some pretty cool ideas. This wedding shows what can be done when a community of people get together and make something properly special. So much of it was put together by friends and family, and it all came together beautifully at Pokolbin Hall in the Hunter Valley.Read More

Monica and Sam have recently moved back to Sydney from Canberra. Actually, they had moved back only the day before their engagement shoot! Naturally, Sydney was putting on a bit of a show, and these two were very happy to spend the afternoon enjoying each others' company while the sun set over the harbour. We began at Balmoral Beach, where we climbed over some rocks and played around in the afternoon light. We jumped in the car and headed off to a Sydney classic: Bradley's Head.Read More
We spent the afternoon at their apartment in Wollstonecraft, where I was taught the delicacies of making home-made pasta using a hand roller. Fun and messy are two words that come to mind. Whilst we waited for the pasta to dry, we crossed the bridge and made our way out to the beautiful grounds of Strickland House. As we arrived, someone had taken up residence perched on a rock, stringing an acoustic guitar. Couples were splayed out reading and picnicking, and the sun was setting over the glistening Sydney cityscape.Read More
